heard by the universe.

Standard

(my glamour shot after returning from the salon and in full singing mode)

i love that my class

is unaware

that i am not a top notch singer

they are the best audience ever

very non-judgmental and accepting

as i belt out my tunes

and try to get them on board

i often improvise my own lyrics

when i only know part of them

or

think of something i’d like to add

many times accidentally

creating my own key

it’s all about the gusto

and not so much the skill.

first time.

Standard

today on the first day

we welcomed our

 new multi-age kinders class

(3s, 4s, and early 5s)

each in their own age and stage

to our school

many for the first time.

brighter.

Standard

no students today

teachers get together to talk and play

and

to see how it feels for our kids

as we encourage them to experiment

to play with the process

rather than make a project

 for the pure joy of creation

we try out materials

with no expected outcome

just for the chance to see what will happen

when we are finished

we share what we’ve made with each other

and as it happens

each one is a beauty in its own way.
